On characters of wreath products

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A character identity which relates irreducible character values of the hyperocta-hedral group Bn to those of the symmetric group S2n was recently proved by Lübeck and Prasad. Their proof is algebraic and involves Lie theory. We present a short combinatorial proof of this identity, as well as a generalization to other wreath products.
